CONCRETE CONSERVATION ACTION –C3

Partner responsible for the action: Centro Studi Naturalistici- onlus

Bat-boxes are refuges created to host many bat species. They will be placed in locations identified and considered most suitable in the woodland areas (above all, in degraded forests and planted conifer woods) using two different types of boxes which vary according to the material used (wood or cement-shavings),  according to how they are made (box or trunk) and the size of the doorway, in order to provide for different species of bats.

After their installation, continuous monitoring will be carried out in order to check to what extent they are occupied and the bat species present.

The action responds to threats 2,3 and 7.

Expected results:

Installation of 1000 bat-boxes.

The conservation of bat species present in the area and recolonisation on the part of new species which have disappeared or are in decline.
